For Children With Brain Injuries The Outlook Remains Murky

The medical field has made many inroads in understanding the long-term effects of brain injuries. Unfortunately, these advancements haven't done much to improve the outlook for children with brain injuries. Most doctors still believe it's impossible to develop an accurate prognosis for children who suffer a traumatic brain injury (TBI). A new study published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal supports this belief.

"There is no single best approach to describing outcome after acquired [sic] brain injury during childhood," explained Dr. Rob Forsyth.

Forsyth and his colleagues studied medical data dating back to 1966, hoping to gain insight as to what factors may help predict a child's outlook after a serious brain injury. Not surprisingly, the study helped to confirm the belief that each brain injury case is unique and the long-term prognosis is hard to gauge with reasonable certainty.

The medical study did find that children whose brain injuries result from oxygen deprivation generally have better outlooks than other types of brain damage, such as TBI.

If your child has suffered a brain injury because of someone's negligence, contact an experienced Ohio brain injury lawyer to discuss your legal options.
